Udacity to offer nanodegree in self-driving car engineering
US-based online education company, Udacity, has launched a new nanodegree program in the self-driving car engineering domain. In order to do so, the company has tied up with various firms that have been working in the field of autonomous vehicles, including Mercedes-Benz, Nvidia, China-based cab aggregator Didi Chuxing, which has merged with Uber, and Otto Motors, which has been working on self-driving trucks and has been acquired by Uber. The education company has taken inputs from these firms to frame the course curriculum.
The Udacity Self-Driving Car Engineering nanodegree program is a nine-month course that has been divided into three terms of 12 weeks each. The fee of each term is $800, bringing the overall cost of the program to $2,400 (approximately equivalent to Rs. 1.6 lakh).
The nanodegree course covers topics like deep-learning, computer vision, sensor fusion, localization, and controllers. Udacity even has its own self-driving car, which the enrolled students can use to test their code. This code testing can be done remotely.
Udacity has started accepting applications for the stated nanodegree program. It will be shortlisting the applications, and will be releasing the final list of 250 selected applicants on October 3, 2016. The first class of the self-driving engineering program is expected to start from mid-October.
